Yesterday Into the Gloss interviewed a very pregnant Lauren Santo Domingo, founder of new luxury e-commerce site Moda Operandi, on her beauty routine. Let's just say the former Vogue editor isn't spending a lot of time waiting on line to buy Dove soap at Duane Reade. We've pulled out the highlights below.
On hair care: "For hair—not like I wash my own hair, I can’t even remember the last time I washed my own hair—I have Avalon Organics shampoo and conditioner."
On blow-outs: "I’ve probably blown dry my own hair three or four times?I’m just bad at it and I don’t feel like learning, when there are such good hair stylists in New York."
On pregnancy weight gain: "I’m the same size, in everything that goes above or below the bump."
On exercise: "I’ve never really worked out before in my life, but now I’m getting ready."
On cravings: "When you’re in New York, and you can get your hands on anything, it doesn’t really feel like a craving. All of a sudden when you’re like, ‘Oh, I want a Belgian waffle,’ or, ‘I want a bagel with lox,’ it’s outside your front door. When you’re in the middle of nowhere and you can’t get it, I’m sure that feels strange."
